    It's not possible.  The powers that buy, ie the conservatives with money, want lower taxes, less regulation, and an end to the social safety net.  They also tend to be social liberals that have to act like social conservatives to win.  They want a Wall Street type.  Someone that won't make social liberals run screaming and can pull neo liberals from the Democrats and centrists "why can't we all agree about abortions for all, gays getting married, and then get back to cutting social security" as well.

    The thing is, they can't get that.  Because the base is deadly fucking serious about stopping handouts to corporations and getting some actual social conservatism this time around.  It's populist and it's mad.

    In fact, the best fuck the poor, help Wall Street, and let the gays get married so we can cut social security options with a chance of winning the general election is... well it's funny when you realize it.
